What to Expect

First time visitors may use the security stickers located in the pew racks, nursery, and children’s wing. Parents/Guardians will fill out the information and place the sticker on their child while retaining the top section of the sticker to be presented during pickup.

We also use KidCheck to ensure safety and security. Once a KidCheck account is created, children can be checked in using the parent or guardian’s phone number. A name tag will be printed for each child and a guardian receipt will also be printed. The guardian receipt should be presented at pickup.

You can create a KidCheck account here.

On Sunday mornings check-in stations are located outside of the nursery and in the sanctuary foyer. On Wednesday evenings check-in stations are located outside of the nursery and in the children’s wing.

The nursery is located on the first floor. The children’s wing is located on the 2nd floor.

On Sunday mornings children ages 4 years and up will attend worship with their parents in the sanctuary. During the worship service children ages 4-1st grade will be dismissed to children’s church which is located in the children’s wing.

We will send a text to each parent/guardian. We ask that you immediately make your way to the nursery or children’s wing where a staff member or volunteer will assist you.

Our KidCheck system ensures that each child is picked up by the proper guardian.

We also have a staff member or volunteer on duty at the entrances of the nursery and children’s departments to oversee the arrival and dismissal of all children.

As an added safety measure, our volunteers and staff members are required to complete background checks, and we use security cameras and monitors.
